Learn the science of life on your next Vacation

Why to learn Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient yet timeless Indian system of medicine. The word Ayurveda literally means “Knowledge of life.” The main aim of Ayurveda is to maintain the health of healthy person and cure the disease of diseased person. This science is based on the principles that the universe is made up of five elements: air, fire, water, earth, and space. These elements are represented in humans by three doshas or energies : vata ,pitta and kapha. Our health and wellbeing depend on getting a right balance of the tridosha (three doshas).

Ayurveda teaches you how to adopt the correct way of living through natural diet and lifestyle to balance your doshas in the body, thus supporting you in your journey towards optimal health. An Ayurveda retreat is a chance to unwind and relax in a caring and supportive environment. Our therapies are profound and personalized for each and everyone. At Shiva Shakti Yoga you’ll learn in an environment which is quiet, calm and peaceful that will help you to achieve a mastery in this science of Ayurveda.
